Bongo is a video assessment tool that promotes experiential learning and soft skills development. It is currently available at UW through LEARN. During this session, we will demonstrate how Bongo has allowed us to develop a fully online Spoken French course. We will show how learner-generated videos promote active learning and encourage students to acquire authentic experiential knowledge. Participants will also have a chance to explore Bongo from a student’s perspective.
